I'm sorry if this is a stupid post (please delete if so), but I was looking for trick shots on youtube and I came across it. It seems like every loser with a table knows this trick. How come I've never heard of it? I'm curious to know many of you know it or if it's just me. I'm embarrased to admit, but I probably would have fallen for it...

The first time I seen that ''trick'' was in 1965.

If you're dumb enough to take someone up on their own proposition, you deserve what you get.

Well we had a better twist on that, with our pool club in college, we had those who joined participate in some hazing. They were to put there face down in behind the rack on top of the rail and a senior would have the pleasure of breaking the balls and see what happened. If the new member only knew that were not serious. They would close their eyes and theh hear a crack of the balls and then the ball would just come slowly rolling down the table. It was an awesome look, but they appreciated the humor.
